This is no time for Bruins to fire Claude JulienThen there's this guy:
In times of crisis — an accurate description for the current segment — it would be easy for Neely and Sweeney to execute change by sacking Claude Julien. Coaching changes can sometimes initiate short-term spikes.
The harder thing would be for the bosses to do nothing. Which is precisely what they should do.
The Bruins are who they are. As projected before the season, they are a team engaged in a dogfight to qualify for the playoffs. That they remain in the hunt is partly because of Julien’s guidance.
If Shank watched more than a single period of Bruins hockey this year, I'd be shocked.
Are we still supposed to be patient with coach-for-life Claude and the Bruins???— Dan Shaughnessy (@Dan_Shaughnessy) January 22, 2017
